    Hey, I don't like to make things too complicated so I'll try to ask this question in a simple and short way.

    For the past 2 years I've been interested in Paleo Diet and have myself been following it, on and off.

    The thing is, here in Belgium, the Paleo diet is not that popular but the people generally are very interested in fitness, health, diet, etc.

    The Paleo Diet does benefit any person mentally and physically, I'm speaking from experience and the experience of a lot of other people that have tried or are on the diet

    I'm 100% convinced that any person that tries the diet for at least 2 week, will love it!
    People don't realize how bad mentally and physcially they feel, untill they finally try Paleo Diet.

    Here is a list of some of the benefits of this diet: (removed the link, just Google it.)

    Let's get to the point, I'm planning/thinking about to start a Paleo Diet guide-type business.
    Rent a place, make an office, etc.
    Guiding people to how, what, when and how much to eat what, etc.

    I have many times heard people saying follow your passion, etc. and I never could grasp what really my passion was, it was just making fucking money, haha. But, now that I think of it, I always being obsesses with healthy eating, fitness, etc.

    This kind of thing, I would love to do.

    So, what's your though on this? I'd really appreciate it if you would give me some advice, tips, recommendations, etc. I know that here on BlackHatWorld forum are a lot of experienced men.

    Thank you.

    What exactly are you planning and selling ? One of the appealing things about the pale diet is how simple it is. Most of the info is available free on places like r/paleo.

    Have you written an ebook ? You dont want to do Youtube videos but anything to do with diet/fitness really needs to have a youtube channewl/instagram/pinterest etc.

    Great thought, you could make lots on selling books and guides, also diet apps for this type of niche sell well, however it may be a bit crowded, (i haven't done any research),

    Knowing about the diet and being able to speak from personal experience will sell your site and products very well if you intend on doing that :) I'll be very interested to see what you make of this :D

    EDIT - One last thing, PINTEREST, for all diet related thing, this place is the god of gods for driving traffic ;)

    Let's see, imagine, I've started this business and people start visiting my place for guidance on how to start the Paleo diet, the benefits of it, what to eat, blabla. So, they pay me 99 euro and I tell them that if after 1 month they don't see any difference and I know they will fucking see a lot of difference! - that I'll refund them. Fast forward... My business is running smooth, a lot of people signing up. Now, I can start selling let's say Paleo diet recepts, food, products, etc. Why not? I know that generally people are not that happy with their bodies and their mental health and they will do anything to improve it. This diet cures depression, relieves anxiety and stress, boosts your energy, improves you concenration, makes people lose weight fast and easy without having to starve themselves, improves sleep, raises testosterone and many more! Not joking.

    Edit: 99 euro might sound too much to some people here on BHW but I live in a Belgium and also in a town where rich people live - docters, lawyers, etc. In short, 99 euro is not a that's-too-much for this deal.

    Uhh I never heard of that diet, thanks to teach me something new, today.

    There is something I would like to point about the "dream job" "passion job" concept.

    If you didn't find a "passion" is fine, not everybody have the luck to discover their passion. If you don't, it's ok. Do not suffer because society tells you "must" find a passion in your life.
    Second, if you find one: DO NOT EXPECT to be a paradise. Society sell us the idea "If you work in something you love, you will be happy and everything will goes great, with rainbows and ponies" that's crap.

    Working on a dream job doesn't avoid problems, stress. It just make it a little bit easier for you to face those problems, but that's it. No rainbows, no ponies.

    I'm not a negative person, in fact for many years I was a possitive one, but then life teach me (with several hits), that I have to be "realistic" and carefully re-think those concepts which comes from society, specially those about hapiness.

    I just tried to warn the OP. He asked advices, I'm giving him some advices. Main about that misconception about "dream job". He aparently found something that he loves to do, and thats cool, but he should be aware that "dreams jobs" aren't as gurus of business says.

    You could definitely pull off something like this. All you need to do it open a physical office and promote the paleo diet to those people in your community, the toughest part will be getting in contact with your target market. You could maybe partner with a personal trainer & work off eachother.

    You'll have some challenges in the education end with the diet as it is not very popular there but that could be good as people will think of you as the Paleo Diet go to guy but I think you'll need to be aggressive and creative in your advertising.

    I'm not sure how this would play out where you are but it is my understanding that the Dr that started the diet is pretty aggressive in protecting his brand so you'll probably want to get some legal council there just to be safe.

    I could see you pulling this off though as the people there are health conscious and, although it is a competitive niche you are entering should you move forward, you would be one of the few that are "experts" in that specific field.

    As to the business model of charging a monthly fee just for consultation, I don't know if that is the best approach. I'd be looking at stocking Paleo foods and offering food plans of some sort along with free classes or free seminars and making your money on the food margins.

    I know and I will be, I'm pretty confident about my advertising skills.
    Talking about competitiveness, that won't be a problem for me because I'll probably the ONLY person that doing that type business in my region 20km+ radius. Never seen such a thing here in Belgium.
    And people will really be interested in it. I know my folk. Thank you for the advice!
